Amber Heard has allegedly fired her entire PR team ahead of her taking the stand in the Johnny Depp defamation case.
The reason? She claims they were making her look bad.
From the New York Post…
The “Aquaman” actress ditched crisis PR firm Precision Strategies on Thursday after getting frustrated with the press she’s received since her bombshell defamation trial kicked off last month, sources said.
“She doesn’t like bad headlines,” a source noted.
Another source said Heard, 36, is “frustrated with her story not being told effectively.”
Yes, the Aquaman starlet is seemingly worried that public opinion will turn against her, and reportedly never wanted cameras in the courtroom to begin with. Depp’s team fought to have the entire debacle livestreamed, and neither Depp nor Heard court choose what the public would see.
Heard fired PR firm Precision Strategies, which is described by is “one of the best crisis firms” — “but they can’t rewrite the history of what’s happened,” according to former Pete Buttigieg campaign manager Lis Smith. “It’s crazy to change teams in the middle of a trial like this because you don’t like the headlines.”
Last week cosmetic manufacturer Milani publicly called out Heard as a liar, saying that the cosmetic product that Heard claimed she used to cover bruises left by Depp wasn’t even available in the year she claimed to have used it.

According to the Post, the trial has thus far included photos of feces, severed digits, melted ice cream, and a discussion about Depp’s penis. It’s become quite the circus, with the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s reactions to Heard’s legal team going viral.
Johnny Depp is suing his ex-wife Amber Heard for defecation… er… defamation after she penned a Washington Post op-ed piece that he claims irreparably damaged his reputation and cost him tens of millions of dollars in work.
Another piece in UK tabloid The Sun kicked off a firestorm of cancellations, which cost Depp his role on Fantastic Beasts 3 and likely future roles at Disney in the Pirates of the Caribbean series. Depp attempted to sue The Sun, but lost that case.
